What does Energy UK say?
Lawrence Slade, chief executive of Energy UK, said: “It is positive to see such high levels of energy switching – particularly when compared to other sectors – with one in five customers switching supplier in 2018. My hope remains that, with the recent introduction of the price cap, we don’t see this element of competition undermined and switching levels fall, as is predicted in Ofgem’s impact assessment.
“With winter in full swing, I urge everyone to get in touch with their supplier or have a look online to make sure they are on the best energy tariff for them, whether that be on price, service or green considerations.
“More importantly, as the temperatures fall, consumers should ensure their house is energy efficient – for example checking that it is well insulated – which is the best way to keep energy bills down in the long run.”
